Born in Groton, Connecticut in 1817, Albert Lord Avery came to the Pensacola area in 1833, and engaged in the hardware business shortly thereafter. In 1876, he took his son Albert Miner Avery as a partner, calling the firm A. L. and A. M. Avery. After the elder Avery's retirement, the firm continued under the management of his son, eventually becoming Pensacola Hardware.[1]
